These substances are often combined in complex formulations (方) to enhance their therapeutic effects and minimize potential adverse effects.

Having over 10 years of hands-on experience in treating a range of health issues, Dalu has helped many of his clients heal their Gut, Skin, Allergy, and Immune Systems.

He is also experienced in treating children’s conditions (ADD, eczema, asthma, colitis) and dogs (believe it or not) with Kampo Medicine, a unique style of Chinese Herbal Medicine that originated in Japan.

He is skilled at “Fukushin”, a Kampo abdominal examination technique to identify internal problems and patterns. He finds the Kampo style of herbal medicine to be highly effective in treating chronic illnesses and difficult diseases. Both his herbal and acupuncture treatments are influenced by Classical Chinese and Japanese doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He likes to use Moxibustion and Reflexology, alongside a gentle style of Japanese Acupuncture to enhance the effects of his Herbal treatments.

Moxibustion is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to enhance its therapeutic effects, especially for conditions involving cold or deficiency patterns in TCM.
